Travel agency H.I.S. eyes alliance with struggling Nova

Major travel agency H.I.S. Co. may form an alliance with Nova Corp., the English conversation school operator struggling under a government order to partially suspend operations, sources said.

H.I.S., known for its sales of discount airline tickets, is leaning toward providing financial support to the nation’s largest conversational English school in return for a chance to recruit its students as customers, the sources said.
